The Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC) requests proposals for a business on the roof of Building 77.  Building 77 is the largest building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Building 77 offers breathtaking (and until now, unknown to the public) views of Manhattan and New York Harbor, and is home to the largest publicly-accessible interior space in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the nationally-acclaimed model for urban manufacturing and technology. With a direct entrance from Flushing Avenue at Vanderbilt Avenue, and a ground-floor food manufacturing hub, Building 77 is poised to become a destination for Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, DUMBO, and Williamsburg residents and workers – not to mention the over 17,000 people who will work at the Navy Yard in 2020.


This is an opportunity to open Brooklyn’s most unique rooftop destination.  The available 24,000 square foot space includes an 8,000 square foot interior space on the 16th floor, and approximately 16,000 square feet on the adjacent exterior 16th floor roof, all or part of which may be enclosed. Both spaces have Manhattan views.
